Dogs killed, left in ditch

The BC SPCA is investigating after three dogs were found Monday shot to death and left in a ditch at the corner of Damms and Willow Cale Roads.

The dogs were a black, male French bulldog, a fawn-coloured female pug and a black and tan female miniature pincher.

All three animals appear to have died from gunshot wounds to the head. The SPCA has sent the bodies for forensic pathology to determine more details.

"The dogs appeared to be in good condition and well-cared for, so it is confusing that they would have been killed in such a disturbing manner," said Dr. Teresa Cook, the BC SPCA's regional manager of cruelty investigations for northern B.C.

"We urge anyone who many know these dogs, or who has any information about the incident to please call the BC SPCA's provincial call centre at 1-855-622-7722."
